The introduction of automation to mining has great potential to reduce safety and health risks by removing people from hazardous situations.

For a system to function optimally, human abilities and limitations must be considered in the planning, design, development, and evaluation processes.

Prof. Robin Burgess-Limerick is an experienced human factor and ergonomics researcher.

His current projects are in the areas of mining automation-human systems integration, as well as equipment design to reduce injury risks, manual tasks risk management, and wholebody vibration measurement and management.
